All MA students at The Davidson School are considered for scholarships of up to 100 percent based on merit and need. Applicants must apply by March 1, 2020. Full-time students are funded for two years.
Applicants for these merit-based and need-informed fellowships must fill out the FAFSA (JTS Code 002740) so that the fellowship committee can assess financial need. To be considered for US Federal loans, you may work with the JTS Financial Aid office upon your enrollment.
The information on this page does not represent a funding guarantee for any current or future PCJE or Pardes student. All accepted PCJE students sign individual contracts with Pardes that confirm program dates, obligations, funding amounts and stipulations for the repayment of funds should program obligations be unmet. Please note that PCJE is not fully funded. As such, PCJE students that receive grants, scholarships or fellowships from other organizations must make reasonable contributions from these funds towards PCJE program costs. In some cases, Pardes coordinates such payments directly with the relevant organizations, institutions or programs; in other cases, the students themselves will need to coordinate these payments. Please address any questions to PCJE staff.
